Chairman Alton Cayton said a decision on the question would come not later than the july meeting of the Board. State Law permits counties to vote a Levy of up to 15 cents per $100 property valuation for teacher supplements. The request of the teachers was made by mrs. Myrtle Carowan of Pantego chairman of the personnel policy committee of the Beaufort county school system. The committee is the communication link Between the teachers and the county school administration and the school Board. Commissioners indicated that one of the factors which might adversely affect an affirmative answer was the operation of two school units within the county. The Washington City school unit already has a 20-cent teacher supplement Levy and approval of a 15-cent Levy would give City teachers additional Money As Well As county teachers. But spokesmen for the county tot tier said although a difference would continue this did not affect Thier request. Questions and comments indicated sentiment for a merger of the two school units but All efforts in that direction in the past have failed to work out a satisfactory agreement mrs Carawan told the Board that this was the third year that Beaufort county teachers had sought the supplement Levy. She said the Beaufort county school unit is one of Only three in North Carolina that does not pay teacher supplements. Teachers in North Carolina Are paid by the state with educational qualifications and length of service factors on the rate of pay. Supplements Are paid by local units to an Effort to attract the Best people possible. Some commissioners later voiced opposition to the addition of a 15-cent Levy by the Board pointing out mounting budget requests from various government agencies. They indicated a willingness however to submit the Issue to a vote of the people. The teachers group had asked and been Given permission by the Beaufort county Board of education to make the request to the county commissioners which is empowered to make the decision. No projection was made As to How much Money the Levy might bring in or How much it would mean to the average teacher apparently details would be Teft to a he Board of education.
